which you supervisors have actually approved would cost the tax payers $120 million. there's also another thing that is really critical is the congestion. the super congestion in the area. luckily i live in this area because i wanted the multi ple transportation bay area options to me and i walk to bart every day. i don't have to drive a car. but there is a lot of small businesses that are in the live-work units, commuters, people who come and go. and i understand how this plan to have 600 additional parking spaces and 200 on the other lot will fit into the city's adopted congestion management program. that affects all the funding and so forth, so, thank you. >> thank you. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is peter. i'm a resident of rincon hill. i'm certainly in favor of san francisco having an arena facility. i submit to you that pier 30-32 is the absolutely wrong location for this project. it took 50 years and a major earthquake to get rid of a monstrosity of the embarcadaro freeway. let's not build another monstrosity on the waterfront. the artist's rendering show the m

decisions, including word and make cuts and where to increase taxes and fees. how are you going to approach these different choices? >> those are really tough choices. i think often, the economy in san francisco is not in a vacuum, and we are impacted by the state and federal government, so we need be advocating with our legislative delegation to prioritize health and human services job development and work force development and important projects as much as we can. at the state level, as we face this huge budget deficit as well to make sure there is flexibility in spending at the local level. but i absolutely think that we need revenue measures that come on the ballot, and voters have to be thinking about ensuring that we have enough revenue so that we maintain infrastructure, the building and maintenance of the streets and buildings and even a kind of parts of the coat -- coast. the need to make sure infrastructure is there and also that we have money that -- to protect the critical safety net for seniors and young children and families and the most vulnerable in our communities as well,

.0 #. the 2001 tax cuts about to expire. senator reid on the floor, the democrats did not want to extend all tax cuts, just some of the tax cuts, and he was trying to create an impression that, at the time, that republicans were obstructing the process and what the democrats wanted to do, but in reallots what reid was trying to do, i believe, was set the agenda and create an environment so that he could win politically and set up after the quote, a rare weekend session in the senate where he had two votes, no republican amendments allowed, and he set this up to show that republicans were obstructionists, and that they would not go along with what he said was good for the country, and this was a public relations ploy designed to shift attention from the democrats inability to come along with what republicans wanted to do, which is fine, their prerogative k to republicans saying we don't want to go along with what the democratsment to do. in short, he was seeking to control the agenda, and i think that's the real issue here. certainly, there are times when minorities of both parties obstruct the m

today. it was the fiscal cliff 1.0. the tax cuts were set to expire and senator reid was on the floor. the democrats did not want to extend all the tax cuts. they only wanted to do some of the tax cuts. and he was trying to create an impression of the time that republicans were obstructing the process. but in reality, they were respecting the agenda and creating an environment that they can win politically. and he said right after this quote, a rare weekend session in the senate -- he had to senate's side by side. no republicans and he set this up and show that republicans were obstructionist. but they would not go along with what he said is that the country. this is a public relations ploy designed to shift the democrat ability to go along with what republicans have to do. the republicans are saying we don't want to go along with what the democrats want to do. in short, he was seeking to control the agenda and i think that's the real issue. certainly, there are times when minorities of both parties both needed to or wanted to. but the real issue is one of agenda control. we actually

where bob jones university lost its tax exemption because the court argued there was a compelling interest in not having the state collaborate with racism. very similarly they should collaborate with the oppression of women but a practice of pauley emery, what would the objection to that be? of course administratively impossible because it creates so many layers of families and former families but in our legal tradition administrative difficulty has to be really extreme to be compelling state interest. one case i know of that trumped the religious interest was a case where an american family refused to allow their child to have a social security, they said that was so fundamental in an organized society, it turns out she had already been given one anyway so the case was very odd in that respect. that shows you that you have to go far out on a limb to trump the religious claim. u.s. about reynolds. reynolds is a case in the 1870s where a polygamous mormon man lost, the first case to test the free exercise clause because it was not applied to state law yet and therefore only the ter

inside and say if we concentrate on small government, low taxes and national security, we'll do well. and in that, jon huntsman is right. >> and not social issues? >> i think we should stay away from social issues and leave those to the states. because the true conservative, you don't want the federal government passing any laws or having any regulations as far as abortion goes, guy rights there is nothing in the constitutional that leaves that to the federal government. those are state issues. and if the state of georgia, for example, wants to pass a law that bans guy marriage, should it be allowed to do so. >> that's a conversation for another two or three hours here on msnbc. but i want to bring you in erich mcpike and mike murphy. he made an argument similar to jon huntsman boldly titled can this party be saved. this is what murphy said in part. quote, the republican challenge is not about better voter turnout software. it's about policy. we repel latinos, younger voters and our once solid connection to the middle class on kitchen-table economic issues. that's a pretty powerful a

the tech companies, all of this plan was -- had already been moved forward by the time the twitter tax break and all of that had gone through, so no, that was not taken into consideration. >> yeah, and i think in my opinion, this is just an opinion, the plan processed in -- you know, in regards to entertainment, i think a lot of the effort currently just came recently, you know, the supervisor said, hey, i want to look at how entertainment is being addressed here. i don't know, i think if you're asking, do they take into consideration what's happening in 2012, i don't think it really is, i think if you look at the net housing and the net jobs that are being developed through the plan, you're looking at a marginal increase of what the current plan is versus the proposed plan, so yeah, so i mean, i have to think about it more but honestly, i don't think it's been a process that's enabled a lot of opportunity for growth. >> thank you. >> okay, so again, behind this memo, take it home, take a look at it, there's some decent information in that and certainly the staff's person at planning w
